There are a few examples on the site at the moment where the broker details are being questioned with regards to some of the accounts that are offering professional services.

Personally I see no reason to hide the broker you trade with and would suggest that Broker is made unhideable on accounts. This would help users to make informed judgements about systems.

11:15, restate my assumptions: 1. Mathematics is the language of nature. 2. Everything around us can be represented and understood through numbers. 3. If you graph these numbers, patterns emerge. Therefore: There are patterns everywhere in nature.

Well, we believe that your broker is your own private information and not everyone would like to share which broker they use.

We'll see the votes on this one.

Thanks for the suggestion!

I can see that opinion. However there is a mix of systems on here. There are systems that are used to promote business interests and those that are used to just promote personal skill.
The former has no reason to hide their brokers, I can see why the latter might want to keep it private.

Maybe introduce a flag to indicate whether a system is for business promotion purposes or not and then have certain elements that cannot be hidden for these business promotion systems? Eventually the convention will become that if your system is not flagged for business promotion then people will disregard it when searching for financial investment solutions. It could even become one of the filters in the systems selector.
 
MyFxBook is fast becoming one of the best resources for users of MT4 ( and Oanda ) and it would nice to help filter out some of the more unscrupulous business practices in the forex world.
